Egypt ACID Number
If you’re looking to ship goods to Egypt, you’ll need to obtain an ACID (Advance Cargo Information Declaration) number. This is also known as an Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (ECTN). To get an ACID number, you’ll need to provide certain documents. Simply send these documents in PDF format to SCK Representation, and we’ll take care of the rest. The process usually takes a few days, provided all the documents are correct and match. Remember that the ACID number is only valid for a single bill of lading and its associated documents, so you’ll need to obtain a new ACID number for each shipment. Let us handle the ACID application process and make shipping to Egypt smooth and easy.
Egypt is a country located in North Africa, bordered by Libya to the west, Sudan to the south, and Israel and the Gaza Strip to the east. The capital and largest city is Cairo. The official language is Arabic, and the population is around 100 million. Egypt has a rich cultural heritage, including ancient history and monuments such as the Pyramids and Sphinx, as well as a diverse modern culture.
The Advanced Cargo Information Declaration is referred to as ACID Number. It is a requirement for all shipments to Egypt as a loading document also known as BSC, BESC, or CTN certificate. There may be serious repercussions and sizable penalty fees if the Advanced Cargo Information Declaration paperwork is not presented. To maintain order and safety in the nation’s port, the Egyptian government mandates the ACID Advance Cargo Information Declaration.
